that the united states had nothing to do with the youtube video that seems to have sparked the violent protests. >> this video is disgusting and reprehensible. it appears to have a deeply cynical purpose, to denigrate a great religion and to provoke rage. but as i said yesterday, there is no justification, none at all, for responding to this video with violence. we condemn the violence that has resulted in the strongest terms. >> egypt is where the latest violence against the u.s. started. egypt may be where the u.s. faces its biggest challenges. you've got angry crowds protesting for a third day over a film that insults islam. now, demonstrates threw mocks and molotov cocktails, pushed through the barbed wire fencing outside the embassy in cairo. police responded by firing tear gas. ian lee is join ugs from the egyptian capital. ian, this is three days with these kind of demonstrations. first of all, do we expect that on friday, a day of prayer, it's going to be much, much bigger and more violent? >> reporter: well, it's definitely going to be a lot bigger. the muslim brotherhood is calling fo

the long-term. despite the bumpy path and the disturbing images, it's in the united states fundamental interest that people have the ability to choose their own governments, that the governments be democratic and free. that's in our long-term best interest. we need to reinforce that. >> we are in the middle of a heated presidential campaign. there are different foreign policy visions. that's why we wanted to dedicate the hour today to understand these different views. mitt romney spoke out this week, criticizing the administration, talking about whether the united states was apologizing for some of the initial response to this. these were his comments this week. >> the administration was wrong to stand by a statement sympathizing with those who had breached our embassy in egypt instead of condemning their actions. i think it's a terrible course for america to stand in apology for our values. >> our embassies did not stand up for free speech in this initial response to this violence. and the republican charge is that it's weakness on the part of this administration that invites this kin

the contrary. the outpouring of sympathy and support for ambassador stevens and for the united states, the governor of libya, and the people on the streets saying, how pained they are about this is much more reflective of the sentiment toward the united states than heavily armed mobsters. >> that's the case in libya. but not the case in egypt. since you brought up president morsi. let me get some clarification. president obama was asked about the relationship with egypt on wednesday and this is what he said. >> i don't think that we would consider them an ally, but we don't consider them an enemy. they're a new government trying to find its way. >> the united states has sent billions of dollars of u.s. taxpayer money to egypt over the last few decades and, by definition, as you know, according to the state department, egypt is a major non-nato ally of the united states. why would president obama say that egypt is not an ally? >> well, first of all, the president has been very clear. everybody understands, that relationship remains the same and the president wasn't signaling any change

of the world. no act of violence shakes the resolve of the united states of america. [cheers and applause] i directed my administration to do whatever is necessary to protect all americans who are serving abroad. it's one of my highest priorities as president. we're also if contact with other governments to underscore that they've got an obligation to cooperate with us to protect our citizens. that's part of their job. now, i know that it's difficult sometimes seeing these disturbing images on television because our world is filled with serious challenges. this is a tumultuous time that we're in. but we can and we will meet those challenges if we stay true to who we are. and if we remind ourselves that we're different from other nations. we are, we're different not only because of the incredible landscape that god's given us, we're different because we're a nation that's bound together by a creed. we're not made up of a single tribe or single religion or a single race. we're a collection of people from all around the world who came here because of a certain set of principles, the idea that a
of violence will shake the resolve of the united states of america. >> good morning. it is thursday, september 13th. welcome to "morning joe." with us on set, national affairs editor for "new york" magazine, john heilman, richard haass. and in washington, nbc chief foreign affairs correspondent and host of "andrea mitchell reports," andrea mitchell. >> we have so much to talk about this morning. of course breaking news overnight. >> yeah. >> we, of course, have been focused on libya. yesterday we were focused on the political scrap that was taking place while we had chaotic situations across the globe. >> i'd say it was more than a scrap. >> i think it was a terrible moment, maybe a defining moment in the campaign, of course what's going on in egypt right now. is equally troubling. and i suspect that when the streets clear, perhaps the most troubling aftereffect of this will be what has not been said by the muslim brotherhood or the leaders of egypt. this morning we'll have to get to that later because this morning more breaking news. now out of yemen. >> yep. witnesses say hundreds of demonst
